The full moon is a golden coin at the bottom of night's pocket, and the black tree branches are the seam of the pocket.

The gibbous moon is an egg, in the nest of the night hen. Her black feathers are speckled with white stars.

The half moon is a thimble on the black finger of night.

The crescent moon is a fingernail from that same finger.

They move about when she ruffles her feathers and preens :-)

Andrew Rilstone:

I love all the sentences without verbs in Modern Amerian Poets. H.D., and I've forgotten who else. Lots of them in puddleshark's LJ, which is more beautiful really, because it has whole paragraphs of them.

Thanks--the moon was so bright, and slightly squashed and egglike, the other night.

I'm trying to think of something for the new moon, but I can't.

In a story I'm working on, I describe the moon as smiling a cheshire cat grin.

The galaxy is a vertebral column and the Magellanic Clouds are formless lumps of protoplasm.

And the dark of the moon is a calm, wide, waiting hand.
